"The Ark" Book Review

It is time for a FIRST Wild Card Tour book review! If you wish to join the FIRST blog alliance, just click the button. We are a group of reviewers who tour Christian books. A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old...or for somewhere in between! Enjoy your free peek into the book!

You never know when I might play a wild card on you!

Today's Wild Card author is:

and the book:

The Ark

Touchstone; 1 edition (May 11, 2010)

***Special thanks to Mallika Dattatreya and Ashley Hewlett of Touchstone/Fireside Publicity, Simon & Schuster, Inc. for sending me a review copy.***

I am halfway through "The Ark" right now and will post the remainder of my review tomorrow. But I have to say that the story of how this book came to be published really caught my attention and I had to see what the fuss was about (rejected by 25 publishers Boyd self published as an ebook on Kindle and sold 7500 copies in 3 months - he was then approached by Touchstone books who bought all 3 of his unpublished books and a sequel to "The Ark" - talk about creative!). So far I have not been disappointed - this book is a suspense thriller to the max with bio-weapons, the end of the world, bad guys, good guys and Noah's Ark... come on, does it get any better? The only question I have is... is this a Christian book? There is nothing overtly wrong with it, but nothing overtly Christian either so far... just a question.


Boyd Morrison is an industrial engineer with ten U.S. patents to his name who has worked for prestigious companies ranging from NASA to Microsoft's X-BOX Games Group and RCA Electronics. He is also a "Jeopardy!" champion and a professional actor who has appeared in commercials, stage plays, and films.
